Locations & Species

The Torres Strait is home to a number of absolutely fantastic fishing locations, and we offer access to this area for only 4 trips per year. It really is among the most exclusive fishing in the world.

The pristine reefs and islands offer a truly unique adventure. We use Masig Island as the base for the trips, and fish different areas of the the reefs and islands each week so that each group of lucky anglers are fishing an area untouched for over a year.

This truly is a rare opportunity.

The locations we fish are chosen each week by the guides based on weather, previous fishing and time of year. Our objective is to choose the best area to take you on your trip to ensure the best fishing experience for all of the key species we target.

Boats Used on This Trip

Torres Strait Explorer trips use our fully guided centre consoles as the fishing vessels.
